Scalp Micropigmentation for Hair Loss
Micropigmentation, often referred to as trichopigmentation or micropigmentation for hair loss, is an exciting new technique that works by inserting a pigment just beneath the skin to create the illusion of closely cropped hair. Scalp micropigmentation is another term for this. As one of the leading San Francisco Bay Area centers for scalp micropigmentation, we are really excited to offer this technology!
Trichopigmentation is a technological evolution of aesthetic and paramedical micropigmentation which allows us to inoculate into the superficial layer of the skin (dermis) a specific pigment capable of altering appearance by recreating the effect of hair on a scalp.
Trichopigmentation is a technique which enables our patients to camouflage baldness (hair loss) or scars in the most suitable way depending on the patient’s situation. By performing this type of treatment, the shaved effect is achieved using a microscopic deposit of pigment, in the shape of tiny dots. The aim is to obtain a natural result. A treatment session takes 1-3 hrs depending on the area being treated. We perform our session with local anesthesia. We can perform the trichopigmentation sessions with semi-permanent (re-absorbable) or permanent pigments. There is no down-time after the procedure.
Here are some examples of the procedure.
